Just to tell my opinion about this: all the filesystems are done wrong.
Databases with primary keys have it right. The fact that a file name is a
"smart key" is THE mistake, since smart keys are stupid.

So the OS is at fault, but don't blame microsoft alone. CVS(NT) does what it
can do to make life bearable.

It is *not* a limitation of CVS.  If you want to blame anyone, blame
for being to stupid to recognize the problems they were creating with
case-preserving yet not case-sensitive.  The O/S is at fault here; CVS
change that.
